delta-hospital-overview

Fraser Health is responsible for the delivery of health care services to Delta, including Delta Hospital, which provides the following community hospital services:

  • 24/7 Emergency
  • General medicine
  • Surgery
  • Inpatient and outpatient care

Delta Hospital provides primary, some secondary acute care and specialty services locally while accessing other community or regional hospitals for services such as maternal, infant, child and youth, mental health and substance use and inpatient surgical care.

Delta Hospital Improvements 

In response to concerns regarding surgical service shortfalls at Delta Hospital raised by Delta Council, Delta Hospital Medical Association staff, citizens, and Friends of Delta Hospital, Fraser Health announced the following improvements to Delta Hospital which are now in place:

  • New pre-admission clinic opened in 2015 to screen and assess patients for their surgeries;
  • New designated short-stay/observation surgical area opened January 2016 with four new dedicated surgical beds;
  • New orthopaedic and cast care clinic opened October 2016; and
  • Review and enhancement of day surgery services to adapt best practices, policies and procedures.

Delta Council continues to actively collaborate with Fraser Health on the provision and expansion of patient resources and programs both at Delta Hospital and in the community. Fraser Health is currently shifting their focus towards investing in the provision of local health care resources for patients within their community (i.e. Home Support and Home Health services).

Expansion of Community Mental Health & Substance Use Resources

Fraser Health is committed to increasing mental health and problematic substance use support both within Delta and across the region by continuing to develop partnerships with family doctors, municipalities, police, and social services agencies to expand and deepen client supports. Recent Fraser Health initiatives, in partnership with external organizations, include:
